A Visit To Don Otavio

by Sybille Bedford, A Visit To Don Otavio Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Visit To Don Otavio books, In the mid-1940s, Sybille Bedford set off from Grand Central Station for Mexico, accompanied by her friend E., a hamper of food and drink (Virginia ham, cherries, watercress, a flute of bread, Portuguese rosé), books, a writing board, and paper. Her resulting travelogue captures the violent beauty of the country she visited. Bedford doesn’t so much describe Mexico as take the reader there—in second-class motor buses over thousands of miles, through arid noons and frigid nights, successions of comida corrida, botched excursions to the coast, conversations recorded verbatim, hilarious observations, and fascinating digressions into murky histories. At the heart of the book is the Don Otavio of the title, the travelers’ gracious host, his garrulous family and friends, and his Edenic hacienda at Lake Chapala. Published in 1953, A Visit to Don Otavio was an immediate success, “a travel book written by a novelist,” as Bedford described it, establishing her reputation as a nonpareil writer.

Download Zu Besuch Bei Don Otavio books, Das erste Werk von Sybille Bedford: ein bedeutendes und beglückendes Reisebuch Sybille Bedford will noch etwas mehr von der Neuen Welt sehen, bevor sie nach Kriegsende die Rückkehr in die Alte Welt plant. Ihre Reise nach Mexiko mit ihrer Freundin ist ganz spontan. Was sie sehen, hören und schmecken, wen sie treffen und was sie Aufregendes erleben in diesem schönen, rauen Land, erzählt Sybille Bedford mit der für sie typischen Frische und mit feinem Humor. "Man muss sich keineswegs für Mexiko interessieren, und man darf Reiseliteratur für ein hybrides, ja im Grunde überflüssiges Genre halten, um dieses Buch trotzdem herzlich zu lieben." Eva Menasse, "Südddeutsche Zeitung"

Download Ein Tr Gerischer Sommer books, Elegant und scharfzüngig - Sybille Bedford nimmt die mondäne Gesellschaft Ende der Zwanzigerjahre in Europa aufs Korn und zeigt ganz nebenbei, wie tief die Abgründe der Verführbarkeit sein können. Ende der Zwanzigerjahre war Europa ein Ort der Hoffnung. Jedenfalls für die 17-jährige Flavia, die sich einen Sommer lang an der Côte d'Azur einrichtet, um für ihren Studienplatz in Oxford zu büffeln. Noch ahnt sie nicht, welche Ablenkungen auf sie warten ... "Leicht, witzig, gehaltvoll, wehmütig – groß." Frank Goosen in der Frankfurter Rundschau
